Obviously this month has been a month for taking stuff apart… first the dryer, now my sewing machine. I have a Brother XR 65 and this thing is a serious trooper. Very few issues with the machine and I’ve had it since 2006 or so (granted I only have been using it solid for the past four years). It’s never been serviced, beyond me personally cleaning dust out. It wasn’t an expensive machine so I really don’t want to spend a ton of money on bringing it to be serviced.
I’ve also been loathe to replace it because even though it’s not the fanciest machine, I know my way around it very well. So when the lights started flickering, then the power and light went off, then came back on, repeat, I thought for sure this was “it.” NooooooooOoOooOoOooo!! I talked to my husband about it and seeing he loves to tinker with stuff, he decided to take it apart.
